lyrics

Verse 1
I built a house and lived alone inside the woods
I stayed there as long as I could
Before I saw it was doing me no good
He said, "We're all living lives of a quiet desperation"
I started to believe him until I looked up at the constellations
The stars are burning bright
So bright and bright and far apart
Pull them together, though
They created a work of art

Look up, look up, look up, look up into the sky, love
You see that moon shining so high up above us?
It rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
I like to think it does just because He loves us

I left the lonely woods and I moved into the city
Traded those stately pines for concrete prairies
I didn't have to look up at the stars burning in the night sky
I saw them burn in the eyes of the people that were passing by
Some were bright and bright and bright and burning happily along
Others had sadly burned out long ago

Look up, look up, look up, look up into the sky, love
You see that moon shining so high up above us?
It rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
I like to think it does just because He loves us

I loved a girl once; never acted like I did or told her that I did
Because the ones before her; they didn't act very appreciative
Have you seen her? Do you know her? She looks so pretty with her hair pulled back
Tell her I would if I could, take all that time I stole from her back
Put it in a little pine box I made with my own bare hands
Filled with apologies, love, kisses, second chances

Look up, look up, look up, look up into the sky, love
You see that moon shining so high up above us?
It rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
I’d like to think it does just because He loves us
